Gonda Indological Studies

Series Editor: Peter Bisschop
The Gonda Indological Studies publishes scholarly works in the field of classical Indology since 1994. The series is published under the auspices of the J. Gonda Foundation (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences). It contains monographs and collected volumes on topics such as the (cultural) history, material culture, literature, languages, philosophy and religions of South Asia. From 2013 onwards the series will be merged with the Groningen Oriental Studies (GOS), which focuses on philological works, critical editions of texts in Sanskrit and New Indo-Aryan languages, as well as text-related studies.
